I am an avid knife enthusiast with a compelling desire to learn to make knives.  Follow my journey on this blog and learn the art with me.

  1. Hey Vance. Great site. Had no idea you were so into knives, nor that you had become a prosecutor actually. I thought you were doing a private practice. Keep up the good work on the site sir.

  2. Thanks Keith. It is good to hear from you. I still remember you buying stock in the eighth grade. Did you make any money from that stock? Thanks for the praise for the site. I am trying to become a knife maker. It has always been a hobby. Since my health issues, it has become much more. I hope you are doing well. Thanks for the comments.

    Excellent site. I’ve stumbled across it several times (I try to read about knives when I get a chance.) I just took a minute to look around and you’re definitely providing some great info on here. I’ve thought about having a couple of specific custom knives made. If I ever get around to it, I’ll definitely get in touch!

    Hi Vance
    It was nice meeting you today.

    Hope we can get together sometime soon.
    I see where you had made a post about Bob Dozier. I was in Spring Dale two weeks ago and got to take the nickel tour of Bob’s shop. Unfortunately Bob was not there. I was told the have a 3 year waiting list for one of there fine knives.


    • Jim:

      It was a pleasure meeting you today. I was surprised and excited meeting Don Shipman and you at the Waxahachie Farmer’s Market. It is always awesome meeting new knife people. I hope to see you very soon as well. Your jigs and grinders look awesome. Thanks again.

    I’m really into knives.

    Started watching “Forged in Fire” on the History Channel and was wandering if there is a school program that I can do to learn a trade like this.

    If there is, I would love some more information about it.

    Really do not want to be living paycheck to paycheck for the rest of my life.
